So Many Days Never Blog

Recently so busy with work, with course, with family, with playing games, at least playing games helps to take the stress away, playing with baby too. But I think best is still to go out with family, go for stroll the best, enjoy the scenery, the cool breeze, beautiful Singapore.

Now baby big, can run, very curious everything also want to touch, now can say 123 ABC, also say quite a few words, cow, nana (banana), cat, no and several other words, learning fast I guess.

By the way wife and baby going back to Thailand this coming Songkran, I wanted to go but now I'm trying to avoid taking leave, last year bonus very bad, this year I want to improve, part of my organization KPI is actually to maintain productivity, they measure this by looking at how many days I'm away, MC, annual leave, childcare leave, I guess even NS leave, can say not fair but well, that is the harsh reality.

Tried Wee Nam Kee @ Marina Square

After I learned about the branch at Marina Square last week, I made it a to-do thing this week, must go and try and so today I brought wife and baby there.

Unfortunately, it was a disappointment, don't understand how come so different from when I tried at their Upper Thomson branch, I thought since they carry the same name, then standard should be not much different.

The chicken at the upper thomson branch was crisp, fragrant, rice was cooked just right and fragrant, chilli and especially the ginger garlic mix was superb. But this marina square branch, everything falls short; chicken was cold, kind of tough, lack that fragrance of a fried chicken, chilli was not bad but the ginger garlic mix seems to lack something. The rice also lack something, don't have that nice chicken rice fragrance. By the way it was several years ago that I tried the upper thomson branch, not sure if it is still there.

By the way I didn't take a photo of the veggies that I ordered, for a $10 veggie dish, the serving was miserably small, maybe small until I totally forgot about it lol.

If you want good roasted chicken, might as well eat Henry's, his roasted chicken super power, chilli also super power, rice also super power, and cheap.

Marlboro Menthol Comes with Seal

Today bought a pack of Marlboro Menthol, very long time never smoke this, now one pack $13.10, really expensive, long long ago got sell the 10 sticks pack, I think one pack only $2+.

Now they have this seal, I think it is to keep it fresh, prevent it from "lao hong".

Wee Nam Kee @ Marina Square

Today we went up to the food court at level 3 and I found that Wee Nam Kee has a branch there, want to try but already eaten.

I think their roasted chicken is the best, very fragrant.

Went to Big Box

This is a damn huge mall, ultra spacious, not crowded, not sure whether it is the same during normal days but today a bit quiet. They also have a hyper-market, the prices seems lower than Fairprice or Sheng Siong, some of their brands I never see before, I think all Malaysia products.

Spacious lift, spacious toilet, clean toilet, love this place, definitely in my to-go list ;)

Happy Chinese New Year 2017!

It's the time of the year where most stores are closed.

Yesterday eve went to Marina Bay to see the River Hongbao event, very beautiful, many lights and display, lots of people and many food and games to play, perfect for family.

And I thought eve no place to eat, actually plenty of places to eat, don't even need to book, unless you want those typical Chinese restaurant then have to book, for example MBS the Todai not much people, the no signboard restaurant just behind esplanade also quiet but at night very packed, damn, wasted my eve meal at Sakae Sushit at Marina Square, now the quality drop a lot, or maybe just the Marina Square branch, the Hana Maki also shrunk until very miserable, I think they cutting cost.

So today first day of CNY, we went to Sheng Siong to buy some steamboat stuff for tonight's dinner. We never go visit friends or relatives, sounds like very anti-social lol, go around visit also sian la, have to travel, might as well slack and relax at home watch movies eat steamboat.

Maybe tomorrow go eat Todai buffet ;)

Feeling Very Unmotivated at Work and Thinking of Quitting

After one week plus of reservist, when I went back to work, I feel so unmotivated, every little thing seems to trigger my urge to throw letter, but every time many things are holding me back, first thing that comes to my mind is my family, my cute little baby girl, my wife, what will happen if I throw letter, or what if I can't find a job, or what will my boss think of me after he placed so much trust in me and etc, it's like my mind is hosting a race of its own, with endless cars speeding round and round, makes me feel so giddy.

Maybe my recent in-camp training was too long of a holiday, I feel like just lying on bed all day and do nothing, or bring wife and baby and get the hell out of this country, the thought of going to work, doing the same shit that never seem to improve, see the same idiots who never fail to make me hate my job more, the miserably small table which is already so freaking small but I still have to squeeze in more crap, the freaking miserable room which is already so cramped and they still got to pack in more people more desks more chairs more shit load of crap, colleagues who can't do their work independently and got to bother me with every single little thing that they can freaking google, it's just so demoralizing.

I feel as if this job is draining my life force, sucks all the good energy out of me, leaving nothing but a frustrated person, I leave office worrying about the things that are not done, I reach home still thinking about the same shit, mornings are the worse, going to work is like dragging weights to work.

Negativity aside, if I really throw letter, I have no confidence that I can find a job with the same pay, I've actually sent resumes, got quite a few calls, went for a couple interviews but didn't secure any job. Maybe it's not the job market, maybe I just don't know how to sell myself anymore.

Now I'm thinking of switching industry, maybe work in the service sector, it's crazy though, I have a degree in computing and information systems, everyone will tell me to stick to my current job, why the heck should I switch to another industry unless it pays more.

Or I can try to make things better, think of ways to improve, ask myself how I can make life better for myself in my current job. I've tried a few times but failed, maybe I got to think out of the box. Can start by resting earlier, work out more, since it is just a few days to CNY, I'll plan some serious rest and workouts, I remember working out does make me feel better, or maybe I'm too slack.

Think positive, do positive, work positive, live positive. Yeah.
